Early Swim Test at QHSR June 24, 2018

posted Jun 5, 2018, 10:37 AM by Troop Webmaster   [ updated Jun 7, 2018, 10:35 AM ]

Every year when we arrive for Summer Camp, scouts take a swim test to evaluate and confirm their ability to safely participate in waterfront activities. This year, council has given us the option to take our swim test ahead of time at Quail Hill. This allows us to speed up our check-in Sunday morning, and also eliminates the need for the scouts to have swimsuits and towels on them as they haul their gear into camp. We’d like to see how many scouts and adults that will be staying at Forestburg are interested in the early swim test.

2nd Class and 1st Class ranks have swim test requirements that can be met by this test even if your scout might not attend summer camp.

Our troop’s time​ ​slot for the Quail Hill Swim test is 9:45am on Sunday June 24th at Quail Hill Scout Reservation​. ​

If we do have enough participants to proceed, but you cannot make it, you will still be able to take a swim test when they arrive at camp.

Scouts and Adults that wish to take the early swim test on June 24th should sign-up here
